Grandma LoveJoy and the unemployments

Okay, a couple hours ago I was seated in my Grandmother’s sitting room. Well, not really, but that’s what it felt like. You see, my current gig is up tomorrow and so is a co-worker’s, so our manager decided to take us all out to lunch…at LoveJoy’s Tea Lounge in Noe (a district in SF).

How was it?

I was skeptical. We were having “The Queen’s Tea”. It came with eight “sandwiches” of your choice, cole slaw, spring mix salad, fruit, crumpets with lemon curd, petit fours, and up to seven different pots of tea (one for each of us, I guess).

So how was it? Okay, despite my reservations, quite good, the highlight being the warm scones with clotted cream, lemon curd, and raspberry preserves…they melted in your mouth like I’ve never experienced before (never had them warm, actually) and the lemon curd and clotted cream were fantastic on them.

Don’t look at me askance – I’m not going coffee-free on you any time soon, just giving credit where credit is due. If it makes you feel any better, I’m drinking a soy latte as I write this.

Heh, coffee man, it’s the coffee.

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
